SA: Pro-women, Pro-life on the Move

The successful WEEP (Women Ending Exploitation by Prostitution) conference which was held on 23 July has given an impetus to the move to enact the Nordic or Equality Model of prostitution law reform in SA. If this occurs SA will again lead the way in standing for women, especially vulnerable women. 

The conference heard from international experts including Associate Professors Helen Pringle and Joanna Howe, as well as from survivors, MPs and Wendy Francis from ACL. Wendy enlightened us with the story of a courageous Christian woman Josephine Butler who helped stop the sale of young girls in London in the 19th century. Of particular poignancy was Dee’s Story – the story of an Adelaide survivor.
